Good morning Lovelies! I hope your enjoying your weekend?
So here we are week 45! phew time flies! This week our challenge theme is "Altered Media" over at Premium Craft Brands, don't be put off by this theme, "Alter" means "to change the appearance or use of something" so it could be anything in any theme, after all you are altering a piece of card if your making a card aren't you? But of course it would be fabulous to see what other items you can alter? I've had a go at altering Playing Cards, I'm pretty pleased how they've turned out.
I started with Maimeri Gesso, then used Yellow Ochre Pan Pastels then using the "Butterfly Caught" huge mask and Maimeri Light modelling paste, gave them some lovely texture, once dry I went over with Yellow Ochre Tint Pan pastels, not forgetting to give generous squirts of cheap hairspray between layers to seal it, then a light dusting of the lighter gold Metallic Pan Pastels, if you've not tried the Metallics yet, you really must they are scrummy, very subtle used on their own but used with versamark or perfect medium they give a fabulous richness, I love gilding wax, but I've found mine are quite redundant since I've had my Metallic Pans! Anyway I embellished my cards using various stamps cut out and decoupaged, I hope you like my project, why not have a go, there is a fab prize for the winner, and we pick a top 3 too!
